VeggieDag has been on a summer sabbatical. The first Thursday of autumn might be a good time for a return.
So, here. October will be the third annual Vegan MoFo, that is, the Vegan Month of Food.
This year, the master list of participants is being hosted by Kittee, Cake Maker To The Stars. Here's her post:
For the entire month of October, blogs from all over the free world and Alaska will be writing about vegan food and the awesome power of veganism. Vegan MoFo started in 2007, when Isa Chandra Moskowitz thought it'd be a good idea to give NaNoWriMo [National Novel Writing Month] some stiff vegan food related competition. Since I still haven't managed to read all the MoFo posts from last year, I suggest you buckle up. For seriously, this year's MoFo's shaping up to be more gigantic than last, and the single most common denominator amongst serious vegans is an unending-giant-love for pontificating about vegan chow. You know it's gonna be wordy.
Go to Kittee's blog to list your blog. Go to the Vegan Mofo Flickr group to post your photos.
By the way, beer is a fine vegan foodstuff (and, yes, wine too).
Every day at Yours For Good Fementables.com is meatless. On an occasional Thursday, I'll blog about that —as inspired by Veggiedag in Ghent, Belgium. Keeping with the 'good fermentables' aspect, I'll often inveigle beer or wine (or spirits) into the posts.
Tom Balthazar [mayor of Ghent, Belgium] has officially declared Thursday meatless in his city of nearly a quarter million people. In an effort to make the connection between meat consumption and greenhouse gases (18 percent of which come from livestock production), Balthazar has asked his fellow civil servants to abstain from meat every Thursday.
